The Duchess of Sussex's baby shower took place in Serena Williams's room, the Grand Penthouse at the Mark Hotel. Considering Meghan is having a second shower back in England, which could take care of all the people in her life who couldn't make it to NY, this is essentially a non-issue.

Baby Sussex is due in late April/early May, and the Duchess is said to begin maternity leave sometime in March.

Earlier in the day, Meghan's pals, including several of her former Suits co-stars, planned an elaborate baby shower for the 37-year-old expectant mother.

Meghan's baby shower saw the Duchess jet to NY for five days to celebrate the upcoming birth of her first child with a group of 20 of her closest friends.

The former Suits actress and her friends stayed at a NY penthouse, which - at £57,604 a night - could be the most expensive hotel in the US. "She's very kind, very generous", she added.

The Good Morning Britain host recently took to Twitter to reply to a tweet by Kensington Palace who addressed United Kingdom school's half-term break. So I really don't know what everybody got.


"I've never seen anything like this at a baby shower."@GayleKing says guests made flower arrangements at Meghan Markle's baby shower that @RepeatRoses donated to different charities. "I mean it just speaks to who she is".

"It was a very, very small, private affair and just a very special time for her", King said.

Meanwhile, the Duchess seemingly appeared to enjoy her highly publicised baby shower and welcomed a host of famous faces to the event. I won this award back in 2002 with my besties, Kelly and Michelle, ' she wrote.

Guest Gayle King, a US TV presenter, said: "A good time was had by all".

Although neither Ms Markle nor British taxpayers footed the bill, The Times led the critically-toned coverage, headlining its article on Friday: "Meghan's extravagant NY baby shower provokes flood of indignation". "So all Meghan fans keep saying she has her own money...if she had used her $5 million pot to fund everything she would be in debt already #megxit".
